GR8FTP is an MSX-DOS 2 FTP client for GR8NET. For now it only supports passive FTP mode.

A list of raw FTP commands can be specified on the command line, allowing creation of batch files to easily upload or download files.

  • Example batch file (put.bat) to put files from MSX to an FTP server in a folder named "gr8net": gr8ftp ftp.myserver.com user:admin!pass:admin!type:i!pasv!cwd:gr8net!stor:%1!quit
  • Example batch file (get.bat) to get files from a folder named "gr8net" on an FTP server: gr8ftp ftp.myserver.com user:admin!pass:admin!type:i!pasv!retr:gr8net/%1!quit

Please report any bugs on this thread.

Wow! That is a nice new software feature! Thanks for that! Which language did you use for development?

Thanks Edoz. I used the same languages as for all my tools so far: C with assembler for the low-level routines, and started with Alexey's BASIC FTP client as a reference (I was amazed by how small that program is!). Let me know if you or Prodatron are interested (I will try to make those sources public when I'll have time).

Alexey BASIC program worked fine, but I'm doing all my MSX stuff in MSX-DOS, so retrieving files was not so convenient, now I just have to issue a "get sofarom.com" command. No more SD card swapping and MSX resetting to test my stuff, that's just GR8 Smile

Great to see tools being created which support Gr8net, but for FTP I rather rely on a PC to be honest Wink
If you ever feel tempted to create an IRC client for MSX that'd be gr8.

Hi Meits!

Yeah, I wouldn't either use my MSX to download an ISO image, but transferring ROM or disk images from your PC to MSX just takes a few seconds (even for disk images). Now that you've talked about that, I think I'll try to launch an ISO image download from my Sony 3.5Mhz MSX tonight Running Naked in a Field of Flowers

Should be doable now that I have all the GR8NET low level functions. Alexey has already done a "telnet TCS" chat program in BASIC, and IRC is already available in SymbOS !

I've seen it in Symbos indeed, but sadly I am not a Symbos person, however great it is. I prefer the MSX environment.

Gr8 work Louthrax!
I am awaiting my Gr8NET and was hoping for at least an FTP client in DOS (was planning on creating it if it came down to it), but you made my day Wink
A standalone IRC client like Meits says isn't a bad idea, but a program that can mount a networkshare on the msx, so your pc doesnt need to be on (if you use a NAS f.i.) that would be very cool.
But in the meantime, i can use FTP within my own LAN to do those things Big smile

You can already load stuff from your nas, but it's read only. A complete share would indeed kick some major butt Smile

And, was the ISO download completed ? Wink And yes.. it would be nice if you can share some source code. Not sure if i can re-use it but would be cool to make something like this as well. Big smile Big smile

Have you tried the UNAPI FTP programs from Konamiman? They work correctly in GR8NET... You have the source code in his page.

Dang! I I knew that GR8NET was supporting UNAPI, and knew about Konamiman tools but I did not make the relation! Will try that (the FTP server could be interesting too).

Anyway there are some things I'd like to have in GR8FTP, like the long file names support, also the ability to create the GET.BAT and PUT.BAT files, that might not work out of the box with the existing UNAPI tools. Not sure if I'll keep my code or jump to Konamiman (must say I like C code for these kind of tools).

Thanks for the advice !
